Give Markelle Fultz the rock in the open court and he's going to make magic happen. At least that's what happened on Friday night in the Sixers' 101-91 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The win is the Sixers' ninth straight, as they've now won 10 of their last 11 games.
Off a steal away from the Hawks, the ball got to Fultz in the open floor, and he took the ball to the rack for the first poster dunk of his NBA career.

After the game, NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jessica Camerato talked with Sixers' point guard Ben Simmons post-game, as he offered his praise for the team's other rookie guard.
Fultz ended up finishing the night with a career-high 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting. The craziest part of Fultz's game is that we still have no clue what he can fully do, because we haven't seen it yet in his still ridiculously early NBA career. There's just still so much to grow in his game that we may not see glimpses of his full potential until next season. But he showed flashes of greatness for the third straight game Friday.
